Microderm-Peel / Micro-Fresh Treatments
When it comes to skin rejuvenation treatments, sometimes two are better
than one. At Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center, our microderm peel utilizes
microdermabrasion and a light peel solution that has all natural ingredients
in order to resurface and rehydrate your skin.
What is a Microderm Peel?
Microdermabrasion is one of the least invasive ways to rejuvenate the surface
of your skin. A handheld tool is used to gently sand the outer layer of
skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing a new surface that is refreshed
and smooth. This is the first step of the Microderm Peel, and other than
feeling a slight scratching sensation as the treatment is taking place,
it is comfortable to sit through.
Microdermabrasion can effectively treat multiple skin concerns, such as
light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and uneven texture.
Typically during a peel, the face is cleansed first in order to remove
any skin oils that may inhibit how the solution is absorbed. Once the
solution is applied to treated areas, the treatment provider will leave
it to dry for a set amount of time. The light peel will then work from
the inside out, gradually improving your skin.
Our light peel ingredients are in the alpha hydroxy acid family, using
a mild chemical solution that is suitable for first-time users or for
those with sensitive or oily skin. These peels can help combat acne scarring,
hyperpigmentation, dehydrated and damaged skin.
Are There Any Risks or Side Effects?
Both components of a microderm peel are safe and carry minimal adverse
effects. Slight redness is common after a microdermabrasion treatment,
which will subside quickly. The flaky, dry skin that also typically results
from this treatment will be alleviated by the lactic acid peel.
As the ingredients of our light peels are found naturally in your skin,
the risk of allergic reaction to this peel is minimal. Your skin will
be more sensitive after treatment, and you may be advised to limit sun
exposure and wear sunscreen after treatment.
When Will I See Results?
You will immediately notice the smoother, softer texture of your skin after
microdermabrasion. The results of a lactic acid peel may be more gradual,
but you will soon begin to notice new, healthy cells on the skin surface.
Our Micro-Fresh treatment uses the exfoliating benefits of microdermabrasion
along with a refreshing facial mask to create smooth, nourished skin.
What is a Micro-Fresh Treatment?
This unique treatment begins with microdermabrasion, a treatment that uses
a handheld tool to gently sand away the outer layer of your skin. Microdermabrasion
is a minimally-invasive treatment that leaves the skin refreshed, smooth and soft.
In addition to exfoliating the skin, microdermabrasion can treat multiple
skin conditions such as light scarring, sun damage, discoloration and
uneven skin texture.
Microdermabrasion is commonly done as a stand-alone treatment, but at Elite
Medical Skin and Laser Center we also offer it in conjunction with a Refreshing Mask.
Although the first part of a Micro-Fresh treatment leaves your skin feeling
revitalized, the new surface is also more sensitive. Our herbal-based
Refreshing Mask provides a soothing, calming feeling to skin that is stressed
or vulnerable, making it the perfect complement to our microdermabrasion
We also offer microdermabrasion with a lactic acid peel, but for those
individuals who want to hydrate and moisturize their skin using the natural
healing capabilities of herbal ingredients, a Refreshing Mask is the perfect
way to follow up an exfoliation treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Microdermabrasion involves no knives, needles or synthetic chemicals and
has minimal side effects. A slight pink or flushed tone is common after
treatment and should subside in a few hours. During treatment, patients
often feel a mild scratching sensation from the microdermabrasion and
light vibration from the tool, but these feelings end at the completion
Our Refreshing Mask is comprised of natural ingredients that relax the
skin and alleviate the dryness and flakiness that are sometimes experienced
after microdermabrasion. You may still be advised to wear sunscreen and
limit sun exposure in order to maintain your skin’s new, rejuvenated surface.
A Micro-Fresh treatment requires no downtime. During your consultation,
you will be informed of all possible side effects and risks associated
with this treatment, as well as any necessary aftercare. The results of
a Micro-Fresh treatment are generally long term, but multiple sessions
may be recommended depending on skin type and condition.
Developing a good skincare regimen as well as follow-up maintenance treatments
can help maintain your results.
Microdermabrasion helps strengthen collagen to make your skin appear smooth.
If any redness or swelling occurs during the procedure it typically subsides
within a few hours. The results of the treatment can last for months or
longer depending on the number of treatments and how you take care of
